Thumbs down for TV4’s Gyllene Tider documentary
STOCKHOLM – Swedish TV4 aired a 45-minute Gyllene Tider documentary last week. The documentary seemed more like a preview of a longer documentary which is expected to be released on DVD later this month. Basically nothing new was mentioned in it, so the hopes for the DVD are now higher.
Of the 45 minutes, about half was from the live DVD released last fall. A TV critic wrote in Aftonbladet that “…TV4 should be ashamed of themselves airing a one hour commercial for Gyllene Tider.” Be that as it may, it was a decent documentary, with all that should be there – fans, friends, parents and old teachers talking about the Boys. It could’ve been a tad more interesting from a fan’s point of view, however. It was clear that this documentary was aimed to the “common man,” since the basic story of the program was “this is Gyllene Tider, they have toured this year, and it was all huge.”
